In partnership with ACOE's (Alameda County Office of Education's) Project EAT and the Hayward Library, Ochoa Middle School families and students, as well as community volunteers and a local church group, came out to cultivate and celebrate the school's spring garden. Over the course of the day, the entire garden was planted for spring and mulched. Volunteers and families left with free seeds and plant starts, donated from Baker Creek Seeds and Terra Bella Family Farms. Students enjoyed sharing the importance of healthy eating and how simple it could be to prepare fresh food from the garden. For more information, visit www.projecteat.com.
